In collaboration with the Melbourne Writers Festival, Jaipur Literature Festival will host ‘JLF@Melbourne’, an exciting pop-up festival with a difference which will be a celebration of the written and spoken word.

Australia’s High Commissioner Harinder Sidhu, at a curtain-raiser event here on Tuesday evening, announced the Melbourne edition of the festival, which will feature internationally acclaimed writers and thinkers from India and Australia.

“In an extraordinary presentation of talks, performances, music and poetry at Fed Square, JLF@Melbourne will be an exploration of culture, migration, identity and gender issues, politics, environment, travel and history,” the organisers of the lit fest said.
